Publisher's Summary

Will's life has definitely changed since that day he went hiking in the woods of Pennsylvania. He's discovered that reality is a lot bigger and stranger than he had ever imagined. Learning about the portals that link the infinite number of worlds opened his eyes to that wider reality. Learning that he was being groomed to become the Champion of a God in one of those realities was an even more startling discovery.

But now it's time for him to pay the bill for his recruitment. Just as the Gods on a single world fight and jockey for power and position, the older Gods from the many different spheres of the infinite play a much larger and more complicated game. The Goddess Aryanna has a quest she needs completed, and William and four other Champions are the ones tasked to do it.

What bothers Will however is what could a Goddess possibly need? And why would it take five Champions to retrieve it?

Not bad

I've finally finished both books and enjoyed them very much. There were time when you had to laugh at some of the things going on but it was still very good. I hope the author doesn't stop here I'm kind of interested in hearing more about Will or Wilma.

yes!

Insightful From Several Angles

This was a very well conceived story from many angles. I liked how it tackled a lot of different topics. And I'd like to clarify my rating. I deducted one star from the performance of this audiobook not because the voice actor did anything wrong but more because the editing was done strangely. The voice actor did a wonderful job and I would give him five stars. But whoever edited this together put in a lot of strange and unnecessarily long pauses when one person stops speaking and another person starts speaking.

I love this concept

There are few other books in this series and I checked those out as well. So far I really enjoyed this series, the characters are cool, the dialogue is believable, it has a great flow, and there's a lot of emotion in it. The narrator does a great job of having different voices for each of the characters and maintaining the same character voice through the series as well.

Great Book and Awesome Audio book

Where does The God Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the highest ranking audio books that I've listened to.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Will is definitely a favorite, as he's the MC, but also because he goes on adventures, and just basically does what a lot of people dream of doing.

What about Rob Shamblin’s performance did you like?

Rob's voicing of the characters really bring them to life and make listening to this book a fun time.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

An ancient secret lost, these champions mean to find.

Expanding the worlds introduced in book 1.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

There is a certain amount of "sexual freedom" introduced in the book, as long as the reader is ok with that I would definitely recommend it to a friend. The underlying story is very good and the intrigue being built up in the "web of friends" Ari is creating is interesting.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The goddess Sirene. I like her attitude and fits of fancy. I also enjoyed how she made her followers basically a large "battle of the bands" type city.

What about Rob Shamblin’s performance did you like?

Rob was a good narrator. Some of his voices do seem a little overyly "pouty" but at least they were distinct and the voices that needed "presence" had it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Honestly I really like the battle system in the world of sirens and the whole "mentality" that everything flows from music.

Any additional comments?

It was a good book overall. I really did enjoy the references to Homer's Odyssey. I just wish the author didn't have to spell out certain things and leave it to those that "know". John Van Sty does like to write novels with quite a bit of sexual uh... promiscuity. It usually goes to the edge of my tolerance of it, but so far the story has been carrying me though it.

That definitely is the case in this novel where the portals of infinity takes on some more intrigue and "game changing" items are hidden throughout.
